MKAY became involved in graffiti in 1982 and began writing on subways around 1983. The bulk of his work was done on the IRT division. He was well known for the works he produced with his brothers KEY and CAVS. He colaborated on many colorful window-down whole cars with high profile writers of the era including SHAME, SENTO, GHOST TKID 170 and others. MKAY counts CAP MPC and SHAME 125 amoung his stylistic influences. MKAY painted subways consistently for several years and closed his career between 1988 and '89.
